    Plus, with the solicits, it looks like Agger is playing a game of his own by attempting to beat the Hulk ideologically by turning him into a marketed license. The Agger-Xemnu alliance is extremely...

    There was an attempt to reprint the series in 'fatback' collections of 12+ issues a pop, but it fizzled after, the third volume, Point Blank. You're spot on otherwise- a large part of the series has...

    I could see it. That creative space was explored in Camelot 3000 back in the 80s, which I think proved it has creative legs.

    Boy howdy, Xemnu is creeping me out on the last page of this issue. Getting Skarsgard as Pennywise vibes. I approve.

    Expanding the Batman: Arkham line to other characters. It looks like they're trying with Batman: Allies, Flash: Rogues and the unenthusiastic named Wonder Woman: Villains lines, which are a good...

    A fun easter egg in the latest issue: Most have probably caught or otherwise read about the reasons for the names O'brien, Harryhausen, Bradbury and Lovecraft. What's a tad more obscure is why the...

    So how y'all enjoying Vendetti's current arc? I'm enjoying it, though I've liked pretty much all of his run so far. Sky Tyrant finally gives a decent Earth-3 hook for a Hawkman equivalent. I'm...

    She had a period of pseudo-anti-villainny around Final Crisis. It didn't take then and i don't think it'll take now, especially with the long shadow of Superfriends.

    I didn't know this, but good. Doomed was a fun series that deserved a lot more love than it got and I'm glad Lobdell's nepotistic continuity (to use Brian Cronin's phrase) has rescued him.

    This issue established- if I'm reading this right- that all takes are valid somewhere in the Multiverse. Original Earth-2 is intact, the 52 era Earth-2 is intact and so is the modern. There's as many...

    I think Reggie's role is ultimately a microcosm of the moral. He thinks coming from tragedy breaks him, but by changing perspective (befitting the Rorschach theming beyond being a simple play on...

    The latest solicitation is out, and once again, Grant is plumbing the depths of continuity. This time it's the Orintho-Men from Flash #125, so early in the Flash's silver age era that Wally was still...

    It is a bit confusing. Snyder's run on Justice League seems to imply they are failed worlds, sort of like the dross of the World Builder's forge. They're then formed by the fears of the surface world...

    That MLJ/Charlton idea is interesting. I've known about the MLJ connection for ages but it never occurred to me at least one analogue did make it in- Hooded Justice is a sort of mashup of the Black...

    It's not quite censorship, but Ellis' "Shoot" issue of Hellblazer was canned at the last minute due to, IIRC, Colombine. It got printed for the first time a few years back.
